Living in the U.S., great healthcare is something we all expect to be available and reliable. Busy in our lives focusing on what is important to us and what we are good at, in general, you wouldn’t think we would need to do much more than eat healthy, exercise, drink alcohol in moderation, and get our routine health preventive checkups and vaccines.

More is needed, because the challenges are complex in our ever-evolving fluid corporate, political and cultural arenas. There are many causes; a few major ones affect us in Iowa more than in other states.
